Wrigly To Buy Big Amount

Chewing Gum Magnate Says Ob

"Our object is to purchase up t o.
100.000 000 pounds of cotton tin

The project is similar to .Mr.

does not rise above 12 cents a pound,

the south, but on the contrary wo

that we will make money by lock

sources in cotton and holding it in-i

Happier Days For
The piist. two months have seen
farm prices at unprecedented Iowa.
But v.e cannot escape the conclus
ion that UitTbolloni has been reach*
rd and that improvement will, be
. ceil during the last six months oi
1931, if not sooner.
Take the poultry business., for < \ -
ample. February saw the price ot
egg. the lowest for any month sine:
official records have been kept. But
why? It is not hard to explain. The
poultry business has been relati ve
il profitable for a long number >f
vears Consequently it has eviwr
leneed an exceedingly rapid develop
ment. Eggs in storage in 1930 were
practically double those in storage
the previous year, averaging around
4.000,000 eases compared with 2
000.000 cases. These were moved In -
to the channels of trade rapidly the
last half of 1930 and early 1931.
largely at heavy losses.
The nature has played an import
ant role. An unusually mild winter
visited the entire country. Hens laid
in January and February as they
usually do in April and May. The
market was flooded, glutted with
fresh eggs. Because of the losses ex
perienced in 1930. there is little in
terest in storing the surplus.
What will be the results of the
disastrously low egg price? General
discouragement. A lot of farmer.,
will quit tire poultry business. Oth
ers will decrease the she of their
flocks. More constant and severe
culling among those that hold cn
will be practiced. Low egg prices
have stimulated consumption Sur
pluses are being wiped out. Because
of heavy winter production the us
ual “flush” spring production will
not be up to normal. Fewer eggs will
be put in storage in 1931. Orders for
baby chicks are about half what
they were last' year—further Indi
cating reduced egg production next
fall and winter.
Egg prices'.should begin to streng
